, about poor people, one thing that effects every president in this country it's not healthcare, it's not foreign policy, it's not gay rights, it's not politics, it's the price of gasoline. i spend $2500 more per year, which could be going into my local economy on gas. i spend $5000 a year on gas as it double the price. if he care about anything in this country, le will do something to create a more friendly environment to get the price. gas down. host: wayne before you go here is a tweet from roger smith. i heard someone say governor romney didn't say salary in pay and work for free. is that true as governor? caller: i believe it is. if you look into mitt romney last year, $3 million and $4 million in donations. when his father passed away, tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars was all donated. mitt romney gave it away every penny he has now he earned on his own. judge someone not by what they are speaking of but their actions. he's created jobs. mitt romney is a good man. guest: first of all, the gentleman is correct, all governor romney wealth is money he earned and it

doctors and patients should be making healthcare decisions rather than panels of bureaucrats in washington, you should be on our side. if you want a job, the approach i have been advocating is proven to work over 300,000, when we are working together. republicans and democrats making regulations more reasonable, taxes lower, freezing college tuition to make sure it is accessible and affordable to virginia. indeed, if you care about the future of your children or grandchildren, you should be on our side. i hope to be your voice in washington, the hard-working taxpaying families of virginia need someone on their side in washington. i hope to be there working for you and making sure that all americans, no matter their background, have that opportunity to cast their dreams. >> the economy is ready for a break. there are positive signs from last week, but i think that congress is the ankle weight right now. i think that the in it -- toge. the decision to filibuster and block a veteran jobs bill and farm bill before election day is a perfect example we have to put new ways of thinking in congres

to create good jobs, good healthcare, a quality education and a retirement we all deserve. >> when all is said and done, your campaign seemed to have slid into a familiar floyd which is you're portraying your opponents in ways we have heard time and time again. you're portrayed as a friend of the rich as somebody who will make middle class pay more because the rich shouldn't have any sort of implications of their taxes changes. >> you are portrayed as a techs and spend liberal. tell me specifically what one thing about your opponent makes him less qualified than you to serve in the u.s. senate. >> you go first. >> well he mentions the middle class, he mentioned it tonight. he does it fairly often. but the middle class is not doing very well at all. we've got to do better. and so i read the pless -- press releases that you put out and i've heard your opening statement, but i don't hear any action items about how we're going to do it better. and so i've got a plan. i know that if we do what we've been doing, more of the same, well, we'll have the same outcome and that's unacceptable

presentta tive healthcare system and making sure we end discrimination on insurance and making sure people are covered is going to be good for business. >> i've been pretty clear about my position on life. we can talk about it now or another time. with regard to judges senator, i think maybe at some point we'll talk about the judge that you held up for so long. but the question at hand was the affordable care act. well, listen, there is no question that we've got big challenges in our country and there are elements of so-called obama care. e i saw last night he didn't mind it last night referred that way. and i've supported them here in new jersey. people with preexisting illnesses should be covered. young adults should have some time perhaps to stay on their parent's policies. but this law comes at a very very high cost. 20 new taxes, $716 billion out of medicare. it's not right senator. >> the next question. >> early in the debate you said as you often do that this country has experienced 43 months of over 8% unemployment and on your website under joe's plan you say in new jersey

done. we talk about healthcare and education because we have plans on both those things. what we're going to do is roll back tax cuts -- and i want everyone to hear this because there have been exaggerations made on the campaign trail -- roll back tax cutes for people who make over $200,000 a year. we will do that. we want to keep the tax cuts that are in place for people who make less than $200,000 a year and give additional tax cuts to middle-class families, tax cuts for healthcare, tax cuts to help families pay for their college tuition, tax cuts for childcare. these families are struggling and hurting and they need more tax relief, not less tax relief. but to help get us on the path to a balanced budget, we want to get rid of some of the bureaucratic spending in washington. they've actually layered on more supervisory people, people at the supervisory level in this government. we also want to close some corporate loopholes. i want to be honest with people. we can't eliminate this deficit. people have heard that over and over and over in four years. we cannot do it. we're in too

healthcare reform. it did not reform health care. it added more people to a failed system. it gave us the failed stimulus. the only shovel ready project really funded in a large sort of way was adding additional trillion dollars debt on our middle class. it also gave us not necessarily an energy policy but an environmental policy. you don't have to look very far down the veto to see the closing plant. it will cost us 35 jobs. it's going to cost the city of billings over $10 million a year in income in the surrounding area. it is going to add as much as 25% to our utility bills. that is the equivalent of shutting off the electricity to 100,000 homes. that's entire city of billings. that's the kind of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and we had to make some changes, and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies

done there with regards to moving our claims forward and expanding healthcare for our veterans. and a special thank you to the have. i know we're always trying to hold them accountable. sometimes we have to push them extra. one thing they did for alaska veterans t. v.a. in historic act of cooperation are now ensuring that veterans who are in rural alaska which in some cases 80% of our communities are not accessible by roads so they can't get in the vern van and go to the clinic, you have to fly and that could be $1,000 or more. but now veterans no matter where they live, they're going to get access to quality helingts care. and that is a huge step for all of our veterans in alaska. thanks to your organization for 130ring that effort and thanks to the v.a. for being invatetive in their efforts. i'll listen to the continued testimony. >> thank you i'd like to recognize my friend from sh arkansas, senator boozman. >> thank you. it really is good to be with you. many of you know that i served in the house for a number of years and served with these guys for a long long time and there is

security check right now to pay for health care. i want to know where this healthcare is that i'm supposed to be able to get. i have been disabled for seven years and i have no health care. host: christine mcconville, you talked about people fighting the health care law, including a man who was fed up. he became his own lawyer and filed a lawsuit against massachusetts public health insurance. why is this gentleman fighting the state, what is his goal, and how is it turning out? guest: well, not to understand the fundamentals of the massachusetts law, you have to understand the mandate, which is a huge issue in the supreme court. in massachusetts, they wanted to make sure that everybody had health insurance, that it was available to people with pre- existing conditions, disabilities. if you are on your own, and you want to get health insurance, you are not paying through the roof. in order for this to work, there had to be a catch all in the law that set everybody will be in, or nobody will begin. we cannot have people pick and choose. during negotiations insurance companies were c

ideas. healthcare. as long as anybody can go into an emergency room and receive free health care, our system is non-sustainable because somebody is going to pay for somebody else's health care. talking is the bit about food stamps. since this great recession, those numbers have almost doubled. i am not saying that they are not needed. we need to help starving people. but as long as people are receiving those things, someone else is paying for them. as far as the other thing i find frustrating is that there is no accountability. obama spent a lot of his power pushing through obamacare. but why didn't he put some time and effort into the simpson- bowles plan? planned putting some of those bankers who were too big to fail in to jail? there has not been one banker personally affected by their choices. we just heard that the new york state attorney general is trying to sue morgan stanley. that is about it. that is a weak slap in the face. host: that is susan from pennsylvania. do you think pennsylvania is a swing state? caller: i think it is definitely a swing state. i am impressed with yo

fundraiser. he said these people believe they are entitled to food and healthcare and they want to live off others. the most damning line, they won't take personal responsibility for their lives. if you watched the tape, i saw a -- man speaking if full sentences. it was spoken with a lot more passion and conviction that you often don't see in mitt romney and he was addressing the question. the question was basically, how can you convince people to get off the dome and take responsibili ty for their lives in the two months you have in the general election? he answered the question quite completely. but again, my original point, you don't have to take my word for that. host: when the vote was first released by mother jones, the entire video was not released. why wasn't the entire thing released? guest: that entire answer was released. we did what any journalist does. when you go cover a presidential speech or candidate speech, "new york times" doesn't put the whole speech on the front page and cnn and msnbc and fox don't broadcast the whole speech. you find things you think are newsw

journalist from mtv with a question directed to senator fisher. >> one part of healthcare reform did away with insurance company's ability to deny coverage for people with pre- existing conditions. part of the trade-off was requiring people to have coverage for individual mandates. good would you say we are keeping pre-existing conditions coverage, and if so, how would you pay for it? >> i support repealing the health care act. what i hear from the state of nebraska is they supported it as well. did we do not like the individual mandate. we do not like the government coming between a doctor and a patient. pre-existing conditions, that is important we are able to address that. what i will tell you is we will not pay for it by spilling over 7000 billion dollars from medicare. that was the trade-off on the health-care aren't now. that was the deal made. that is not sound policy. everybody knows it is not sound policy. we can look for savings with tort reform. medical procedures that are required are often unnecessary. that is one way we can look at it. >> i signed a bill, and it had no impac

healthcare plan passed with only two descending votes. so i think you saw some of that from him. in terms of the brooder picture is americans -- and this is not a knock, they generally want what they don't have. when one party is in control you tend to have elections like 2006 or 2010 where the party that controls everything gets slapped down. and then when you have what you have now where you have split control where the democrats have 2/3 and the republicans have 1/3 of washington, then people say i think we'll be better with one party control and then they say be careful what you wish for. >> i just have two comments. last night my reaction to the debate was where is the substance mr. romney? is that a good debate just throwing around a lot of comments. and i didn't think the spt taking credit for some of the things he's doing. and the second comment i is minority voters are scared of the i.d. i would like to see if you would comment on how you're polling and if you're involved with any of the hispanic leadership about making sure the vote gets out? >> i disagree with the first part. i th
